Our ongoing focus on developing our product offering in response to the rapidly changing market has led to the introduction of a new product development team in the UK.
Led by Lee Alderman-Davis, Global Product & Development Director, the team is working on several new developments, the first of which will launch in March and April.
- Sea-Air Services from Asia ,via Dubai to the UK and US, offer an excellent alternative to ocean freight given the ongoing challenges with space and equipment on these trade lanes. We have successfully run these services for some time on an “as-needed” basis and see a clear opportunity to further develop this service. Offering priority loading and a 30-40% reduction in transit times vs ocean freight (with transit times virtually guaranteed), this service delivers much-needed reliability without incurring the costs of air freight.
- Air Freight Export Services from the UK to various destinations will be grown and developed with a clear product offering and highly competitive ex-works and freight rates.
- New Courier Services will be launched in April to complement our existing freight service offering, giving shippers of smaller volume, time-critical cargo a new and competitive alternative and supporting e-commerce distribution requirements in these markets.
- Extended European Road Freight services will also be launched during April.
We look forward to sharing more details of these developments directly with you in the next few weeks.
